Questions for the Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Beit Shemesh who are throwing eggs, rocks and spitting

  • Why would you move to a place called “House of Sun” if you expected people to be all covered up?
  • There are plenty of perfectly nice Ultra Orthodox Jews. Have you considered wearing a different color hat from black so that you can be identified? Since your issue is with women, perhaps pink would be a great color.
  • Isn’t Hebrew a sacred language? Then how is it appropriate for you to graffiti buildings?
  • What happens if a woman sits in the back of the bus and is checking out your neck? How is that ok?
  • Can’t you come up with another name to call the police than Nazis? It’s really distasteful.
  • Wouldn’t you rather eat those eggs?  Israeli breakfasts are so good!
  • Didn’t “sinat chinam” destroy Israel before? Are you also supplying Iran with nuclear weapons?
  • How do you know that your wives are behaving modestly if you are outside harassing people?
  • Don’t you have PR Consultants? Right now you are being compared to the Taliban. You need to work on your image.
  • Why if you wanted to fight so much didn’t you just join the IDF?
  • Aren’t you supposed to be studying?

Brilliant, with one exception.

Pink for women isn't UltraOrthodox, or even all that retro. It's a pretty modern change, so probably something they wouldn't agree on as beged isha, though maybe that would be good support for their wearing it... See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink for more information.
